Not sure if anyone here went to this show but if you did I would like to see a show review. I found the set on setlist.fm.

Set 1:
1. Here Come the Bastards
2. Wynona's Big Brown Beaver
3. Groundhog's Day
4. Cosmic Highway Tease
5. Frizzle Fry
6. Over The Falls
7. American Life
8. Jerry Was A Race Car Driver
9. Over the Electric Grapevine

Set 2: (Green Naugahyde in it's entirety)
10. Prelude to a Crawl/Hennepin Crawler
11. Last Salmon Man
12. Eternal Consumption Engine
13. Tragedy's a' Comin'
14. Eyes of the Squirrel
15. Jilly's on Smack
16. Lee Van Cleef
17. Moron TV
18. Green Ranger
19. HOINFODAMAN
20. Extinction Burst/Salmon Men

Encore:
21. To Defy the Laws of Tradition
22. Tommy the Cat

I had a good feeling they were going to play Green Naugahyde in it's entirety when I heard it's an evening with tour. This set is pretty great but since next week is gonna be my first Primus show i'm gonna be a little disappointed if I don't hear John the Fisherman, Too Many Puppies, and My Name is Mud. It's so weird that they're leaving out their biggest songs.

Wow. They are doing Wynona again. They haven't done that since since the Beating A Dead Horse tour. (the only time I got to see them, I won tickets)

Sounds like a killer show.

aside - so happy got to see Sausage play "Toys Go Winding Down" on their tour opening for Helmet and ROllins back in the day

If Cosmic Highway Tease isn't from the new album, what album is it from?

On a side note, set 1 is pretty awesome, too bad I think set 2 would drain me (not a fan of the new album) before closing nice with set 3.

I just got home from the show.
It was a really good show - but... the new stuff, while good, was unfamiliar to almost everyone, so they kinda lost the crowd with it. Closing with Tommy the Cat was insane (in a good way!). No "My Name is Mud"... odd...

they left these out at the Brooklyn show last year, felt very weird. They would change their setlist up every night though so they probably will with this tour.

22 songs total, for a two set show is kinda short imo. They're playing a venue a couple hours from me on Monday, and the venue is promoting it as "2 Long Sets." I would think at least 15 songs per set would be needed for the adjective "Long" to be used.

It's a song from Les Claypool's solo album Purple Onion. I'm not sure why they're doing part of it at a Primus show.

Bands play covers all the time.

Primus like to improvise live and add more to the song then what's on the record, minutes of more material. Kinda got annoying when I saw them actually, but that's just me.

They've somehow become a jam-band. Tommy the Cat live alone is upwards of ten minutes.

I'm starting to wonder if I should go see them again. I haven't really been a fan since Anti-Pop but these setlists are stellar. The whole new album set thing is what isn't selling me at all.

Have you heard the new album? It's great.

theyre probably more jammy now bc of Les being entrenched in that scene for years now with Oysterhead and such.

:confused: Why are people surprised that the first set is going to change each night and that Primus adds extended jams to their songs? This is nothing new.

And the new record is great.

I've heard bits and pieces but Primus and Les Claypool in general are just something I can't get into anymore. 15 years ago they were probably in my top 3 bands, but as the years have gone on and my tastes have gotten heavier I'm just not too much into them. Really, I'd just go for nostalgia purposes but ticket prices are so high in Toronto sometimes that $60 for nostalgia is just too much.

Dude they jam everything, the show was nearly 3 hours. What more could you ask for?

Apparently everyone exceot me knew Primus has become a jam band?

I don't care for jam bands. Not my thing, never was, never will be. Closest thing to a jam band that I can stand is Clutch. Besides that, I want my songs between three and five minutes long, then move along to the next one.
